S*** school. Unfriendly students. Advisors are horrible. Lots of stupid rules that management doesn’t adhere to. Frequently power outages. Frequent attacks on campus, crimes, and muggings.

Administration truly does not care about the well being of their students. At times it feels like “recourses” are nothing beyond a facade created to please the brochures.

I love my school and think it’s great. Sometimes classes can be irregularly hard compared to what other universities are doing.

Campus is fine--close to a lot places in Boston. Clubs and other extracurricular activities are highly decentralized and often poorly run (overconfidence by students, unwillingness to listen to others, and lack of oversight). Student union / student government is decent. Careers Service has been helpful, but often suffering from the problem of decentralization and lack of connection. The internet is often slow, but manageable.

Faculty don't spend enough time and attention on students. I think this is because they are mostly focused on getting stipeds for research. To be fair, BU has plenty of resources available which turned my whole experience around. I wonder if faculty in other departments have more time for students. But it's a real problem in my department (Science).
